We took the Torgil for a cruise on the Douro. I commend the staff who executed the Viking program with professionalism and efficiency. I also will say that the cabin was quite nice although I would have liked the bird poop and other ... Read more

We cruised the Duoro River of Gold, which was my Mother's choice. Beautiful Scenery, wonderful food, plentiful wine with meals. Staff was very attentive and friendly, ship was lovely. This was my first river cruise, and I did expect the ... Read more

The actual cruise is not like the other river cruises we took on the Rhine and Danube as except for Porto the places where we docked were of no interest, just small towns along the Douro. The actual trip starts with 2 nights in Lisbon, if ... Read more

Thanks to the crew of the Viking Ship Torgil, A bad situation was salvaged and made into a great Journey. The Portuguese River Authority would not let us sail the Rio Douro, because the river was too high. Excessive rains and the ... Read more

As usual with Viking, we were met at the airport and had no worries about logistics from that point onward. The trip was very interesting and educational. We also took both the pre and post cruise extensions. These were also extremely well ... Read more

After a three-flight trip and navigating the "maze" (otherwise known as Frankfurt Airport), it was comforting to be met at Lisbon by a Viking representative, who took us to Lisbon's Hotel Tivoli. This hotel is fine and well ... Read more

'Newbies' for river cruises and Viking - great experience from beginning to end. Two nights in Lisbon at the Tivoli Hotel was enough to savour the 'best of' (especially with a three hour Segway tour!). The trip to Belem Tower introduced us ... Read more

Wonderful river cruise and sites. The excursions were very well administrated. The only complain we had was the Trivoli hotel in Lisbon. While the public areas were lovely as well as the restaurants our room was dated and worn. This ... Read more

The cruise up the Douro river was nice but every stop had a LONG bus ride to get to all of the shore excursion towns & destinations. This included the bus ride from Lisbon to Porto. I also found it strange that the transpiration ... Read more

Our 7th river cruise with Viking and quite possibly the best. It's difficult to grade river cruises against each other as itineraries and scenery are so different but this one was truly fantastic. Starting in Lisbon a day prior to ... Read more

This was our fourth trip with Viking and it lived up to our previous experiences. Torgil was a beautiful, modern ship and we were lucky to have a suite (212), which spoiled us: we also took two other cruises in France (Seine and ... Read more

Probably, my friends are getting tired of hearing about what a wonderful time I had, and having me whip out my phone to show a picture of this or that. The ship was small, immaculate and well-designed. There was a shallow pool on the ... Read more

My sister and I did the River of Gold itinerary in Portugal's Douro River valley. I enjoyed the smaller ship designed for the river as at 108 passengers it was a nice size - not too small and certainly not too many. The crew was ... Read more

We had a fabulous time - nothing but good to say about the cruise. The pre-extension in Lisbon and post-extension in Santiago de Compostela were both wonderful also. The ship was lovely - immaculately clean, nice decor with a ... Read more

Viking cruises are all top notch. I have sailed China with them before. Riverboats are small, food is excellent, service exceptional. Having said that, this cruise is of any interest ONLY if you are really into wine. Ports are very small ... Read more
